Who do you support?
Hoping this gets stickied since then newbies can add to this thread when they find it.
- Who do you support and in what sport?
- How long have you been supporting them? (If you can remember)
- What was the best moment with your team since you've been supporting them?
- What was the worst moment with your team since you've been supporting them?
I'll go first since i'm a sportsjunkie and follow a stupid amount of sports.
Here are mine (Part 1):
Manchester City FC
Have been for a long while (before the money and we struggled to stay in this league)
Joint 10th most successful english cup with 5 FA Cups, 4 Leagues Cups, 2 english division titles, 1 pointless Euro minor cup and a truck load of funny stats and stories.
Best moment:Being the only team in Jose Mourinhos first season as Chelsea manager to beat his Chelsea, 1-6 at Old Trafford or the FA Cup comeback against Spurs!
Worst moment: Middlesborough 8 - 1 Man City a few years back.
Vancouver Whitecaps FC
Started supporting them the day they were allowed to be in MLS so since the start of there professional career a few months back. Never won anything but I think it'll be fun to support another club from overseas.
Best moment: Hassilis equaliser against the Sounders
Worst moment: Winning the Wooden Spoon. But every team has to start somewhere, even if its rock bottom.
NHL (Ice Hockey):
A 'nuck since 2005. We have a lot of highs and lows and will continue too.
Best moment: Bieksa scoring the goal to beat San Jose to take us into the Stanley Cup finals and the whole season beforehand.
Worst moment: Louongo leaking a stupid amount of goals in the finals to give the Boston Bullshits the win.
A bit of a weird story but I used to be a Detroit Tigers fan and even saw them play, but then me and my fiancée (who was a hardcore Tigers fan) so I stopped watching this. I've only just gotten back into it and I decided to pick the Brewers since I like Wisconsin and the fans of them are pretty cool. Can't really like any Detroit teams now, just kinda left a sour taste for them really.
Best moment: Beating the DiamonBacks 3-2 in the series (mainly the final nail biting game)
Worst moment: Losing to the Cubs 5-1 near the end of the season.
Football (Soccer) is the only sport I actually support specific teams. I support:
ooh, this is a good one
in the NFL I've supported the Pittsburgh Steelers since 2005
Best Moment since supporting them
when this play happened, I marked out more than I would if Shawn Michaels returned full time, biggest play in Super Bowl history
when this happened I literally died inside, after this happened I went into my room, and just sat in the dark with no lights on no TV, and just sat there
Part 2 (doing it in parts since I want to add the teams' logos)
NFL (Gridiron football):
Been a fan since 2008. Yes I know they're not the best and not done much but I look at a lot of other teams and I either don't like the state/city, play in shite colours or way to successful to be interesting to support.
Best moment: Beating the Ravens by kicking or beating the Colts (pick any ;D)
Worst moment: Going from 8-5 to 8-8 when we could of gotten to the play-offs last season
Dat logo. VHX supports PHX ;D Big fan of Steve Nash and like NFL there are a lot of teams I don't like so these guys have my support (...when they play lol)
Best moment: Beating the Spurs a night I stayed up to watch, was worth it.
Worst moment: Overall where we finished. Should've made the play-offs but didn't
AFL (Aussie Rules Football):
Frementle Dockers FC
Not going to lie. Just picked them this week because i'm going to try and get into this sport some more so hoping this unsuccessful and young-ish team does some interesting stuff.
Final team I support over all sports is:
I assure you. For sports like football I have tried not to support them but I just end up routing for them. Obvious reasons for supporting them. I'm English lol
This is even in sports I currently don't have a team for (e.g Rugby and Cricket)
Best moment: The best 3 english moments would have to be
3rd - Being ranked #1 in Cricket and winning the 20-20 cup.
2nd - Winning World Cup 2003 vs. the Aussies.
1st - Well. We have a song for it now. ;)
5-1 AND EVEN HESKEY SCORED! 5-1 AND EVEN HESKEY SCORED! 5-1...TO ENGLAND!
Worst moment: Fuck how long do you have. Mainly football moments due to us sucking a lot in World Cups and Euro Cups. Probably Euro 2004.
I'll probably add to my list when I want to expand my sports lol.
been a supporter for chivas since 2005 the year before we were champs
best memory when bofo bautista scored the winning goal to be crowned champs
and you gotta love the passion
worst moment being when we lost our 9-0 undefeated streak to a lower table team batttling to not relegate
Ah thank you :)

Been a Steeler for a while now then too :)
part of me wishes I was alive back in the 70's in the Steelers golden age, but this is a pretty good age as well, but I would have loved to see Lynn Swan, Joe Greene or Jack Lambert play live, but instead, all I get is black and white footage and stories about them
